Think you can conquer these burgers and shakes?

Cult New York burger joint Black Tap recently opened its doors in Abu Dhabi.

Black Tap - the cult burger joint from New York - brings its burgers & shakes to Abu Dhabi's Yas MallServing what it bills as craft burgers, the chain caters to the Instagramming, snap-happy generation of foodies today who love a gourmet burger and over-the-top milkshake.

Now open in Yas Mall, following its success in neighbouring Dubai, Black Tap is serving up its award-winning burgers and decadent shakes for food lovers in Abu Dhabi at its latest outlet, complete with a 90s hip-hop soundtrack.

The Cotton Candy milkshake at Black Tap

On the menu are options like the Greg Norman burger with Wagyu beef and blue cheese, the Californian with turkey, avocado, Swiss cheese and truffle mayo, a falafel burger for vegetarians and a vegan burger comprising a black bean patty, pickled onions, salsa verde, cilantro and vegan mayo.

The brand’s trademarked CrazyShake milkshakes are in a league of their own with flavours like the cookies ‘n’ cream supreme – an Oreo shake with a vanilla-frosted rim, crushed Oreos, a cookies and cream sandwich, whipped cream and chocolate drizzle. Then there’s the totally photo-worthy – but distinctly difficult to drink – cotton candy, a strawberry shake with a vanilla-frosted ring, blue, pink and pearl chocolates, a pink lollipop, rock candy, whipped cream, and of course, cotton candy. Think you can handle it? You’ll need a huge appetite, potentially a friend to help you out, and of course plenty of phone battery to go Instagram crazy.
